Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent place to walk around if looking to sample lots of different street foods for a very low price. Be sure to get a fresh smoothie for practically nothing, and stop at the man selling the plates of pork, rice and vegetables. A filling lunch for just a couple dollars.

There are a number of night markets in Chiang Mai, and this one is located along Bumrung Buri Road, starting at the Chiang Mai Gate of the Old City and spreading out for about two blocks in multiple directions (it's somewhat difficult to clearly define the limits of the market as I'm told the number of participating vendors can vary).

It's actually one of the smaller events in Chiang Mai, but it remains a wonderful place to sample a wide variety of street foods, local crafts and other wares. We were focused on the food aspect of our nocturnal excursion, and in this regard were very happy with the eats to be had.

This is the kind of place and environment that the late, great Anthony Bourdain would satiate his regular cravings for all kinds of pork-related goodness, but there's a expansive selection of beef, chicken, fruits and veggies at hand as well. There's no set sequence to how you go about exploring the many stalls- just pick a direction, start walking and stop to munch when the mood strikes you. The prices are incredibly inexpensive for those used to food inflation in the US, and the quality of food is excellent (and very often prepared right in front of you as you anxiously await to taste the proverbial rainbow of flavors and textures: sweet, spicy, salty, chewy and always delicious. Our family of four ate our fill (which was a lot, I would otherwise be embarrassed to admit outside the confines of this review) for approximately 50 USD.

There were a few stalls that seemed to have a reputation for good eats, as the waiting line for these vendors was always long. The dedicated foodie draws upon whatever reserves of gastronomic patience they have and tries to suppress the desire to exclaim "take my money!". There was one particular gentleman selling BBQ pork ribs to a long line of customers...

Yes, it was worth the wait.

Walked by a fake watch stall on Night Market Bazzar and the owner/employee was very rude. Asked how much the costs of his fake Rolexs etc. and was asked how much can I afford. Told him his watches were not of good quality and then he told me I have no money anyways to buy the better ones. Asked him to show me the better ones but he was rude saying you Chinese always want to bargain. I'm American Chinese though he looked down on people of Asian descent. I am just writing this review because I felt angry he treated customers this way.

The Night Market in Chiang Mai is a must-visit destination for travelers who enjoy shopping and experiencing local culture. The market opens every evening and offers a wide range of products such as clothing, accessories, souvenirs, and handicrafts. Visitors can also find an abundance of food stalls selling local delicacies and snacks. The market is vibrant and lively, with numerous street performers and musicians adding to the ambiance. While it can get crowded, especially on weekends, the atmosphere is generally relaxed and friendly.
Overall, the Night Market in Chiang Mai is an excellent place to shop, eat, and soak up the local culture. Visitors should be prepared to haggle for the best prices and take their time exploring the many stalls and attractions.

The pollution is desperate, choking smoke everywhere leaves your eyes streaming and gasping for air. Thee burning season is killing the whole of Thailand, any kids or elderly are at risk. The rest of us have to wear masks indoors and out.

We went two times for dinner to this food street market. If you plan to come here to eat or for a snack you need to try the gyoza’s. They were the best ones we ever had :). There is a lady selling them on the right side of the market next to the street. She sells chicken , pork or veggies gyoza’s. We tried them all and they were all super tasty .

This is a great market, open from early morning until late at night. All kinds of fresh vegetables, fish, meats, as well as an amazing array of prepared foods. Something for every taste.

This is a good smaller night market in Old City. Easy walking distance from most hotels. My must haves are Gyoza, mango sticky rice and Roti. Roti is dough they fry that you put toppings in. I get banana, nutella and milk. Most vendors can understand English. You can tell if they have their menus posted in both Thai and English words. There are places to sit but they are owned by the vendors so they will tell you where to sit. If you want alcohol you need to go to the 7-11 right on the market street. There is a vendor that sells fried chicken on a stick and spring rolls that are delicious! You must have the Gyoza and that is the name on the stand. I prefer to eat local markets. You need baht, try to pay in smaller amounts as they may struggle to change large bills.

This is one of the best night market in Chiang Mai. Great vendors and stalls selling many different foods. The stalls on the canal have tables and chairs set up so you can sit down and enjoy your meals.

The night market is a local favorite, many come, stop by and get their food for dinner here. It's very vibrant and lively, great atmosphere.

You will get 2 feelings in one place.
Tapae Gate is the historical wall that still shows large and strong.
You will see the old gate which now is a walking street market.
There are a lot of things to eat and to buy, and you will meet visitors from around the world. It very funny and enjoyable.
